Capital markets applications often require high performance, massive scalability, and high-performance data access across the enterprise to meet the demands of modern, digital business activities. In addition, digital transformations may require capital markets companies to design architectures that enable multiple business applications to access data from multiple, disparate data sources in real time.

This white paper provides insight on improving the scale, speed, and agility of MySQL so that it can support the digital transformation initiatives of today's enterprises. New business needs and performance demands have pushed many applications beyond MySQL's (and other RDBMSs) architectural limits. In many cases, the issues cannot be remedied by just fixing MySQL.
This white paper explains how to use in-memory computing to add PostgreSQL speed and scale options to end-to-end IT infrastructure—both from PostgreSQL-centric vendors and from other open source and third-party products. It also explains how help create flexible IT infrastructure over time to both increase speed and scale.
Learn how high-performance in-memory computing architecture is rapidly becoming the method of choice for today’s real-time applications that are focused on big data, fast data, streaming analytics or machine and deep learning.
Download this white paper to learn about your options for adding speed, scale and agility to end-to-end IT infrastructure—from SAP HANA to third-party vendors and open source. It also explains how to evolve your architecture over time for speed and scale, become more flexible to change, and support new technologies as needed.
This white paper discusses how to increase Microsoft® SQL Server® speed and scale using in-memory computing. There are options for adding speed and scale to Microsoft SQL Server® at the database level—including SQL Server Always On Availability Groups and SQL Server In-Memory OLTP—and each has its place. But when the speed and scale needs extend beyond the database layer, the best long term approach is in-memory computing.
This white paper discusses how to increase and accelerate your Oracle database speed and scale using in-memory computing. There are many Oracle® options for adding speed and scale to Oracle Database, or for replacing it—including Oracle RAC, Oracle Database In-Memory, Oracle Exadata, Oracle GoldenGate, Oracle TimesTen Classic, Oracle TimesTen Scaleout, and Oracle Coherence—and each has its place. But when the speed and scale really needs to be addressed beyond database layer, the best long-term approach is in-memory computing. This white paper discusses in-memory computing options for your Oracle database deployment.
This white paper will take a detailed look at the challenges faced by companies that have either used Redis and run into its limitations, or are considering Redis and find it is insufficient for their needs. This paper will also discuss how the GridGain in-memory computing platform has helped companies overcome the limitations of Redis for existing and new applications, and how GridGain has helped improve the customer experience.
This white paper discusses the challenges facing today’s insurance industry, the opportunities new technologies can offer, and the crucial edge that providers can gain with solutions such as the GridGain in-memory computing platform.
This white paper discusses how an in-memory computing platform solution like GridGain gives financial services companies the speed, scalability, and flexibility they need to build successful IoT-based applications and services.

This webinar will give you a solid understanding of how to use Node.js with Apache Ignite. Attendees can then use this knowledge to build scalable Node.js applications with Ignite.
Learn the best practices that the GridGain® Customer Solutions team has used to troubleshoot hundreds of Apache® Ignite™ deployments. We will share with you how to set up deployments to make them easier to monitor, manage and keep up and running properly.

Whether you are getting started with Apache Ignite or already deployed, this session is for you. Learn the best practices that the GridGain® Customer Solutions team has used to troubleshoot hundreds of deployments. We will share with you how to set up deployments to make them easier to monitor, manage and keep up and running properly. In this session, you will see best practice examples on how to:

Learn what's new with Apache Ignite 2.7. This session, given by Akmal Chaudhri, GridGain Evangelist for Apache Ignite, is for all Apache Ignite users. You will learn how the new capabilities of Apache Ignite work. You will also understand more about some of the other changes made to Apache Ignite, and the reasoning behind them. Come with your questions, and learn from the questions of your peers. Topics covered include:

Many modern applications provide full text search as a core feature of the overall product.
There are good open source and commercial options available already, but what if all your data is in Apache Ignite? Do you really need to pull in another system to solve this problem?

The short answer is no. Ignite has built in support for fulltext indexing of content. If you use the SQL APIs there is an off the shelf option which just works and suits many use cases. If you use the key value APIs this is less true.

Digital transformation is arguably the most important initiative in IT today, in large part because of its ability to improve the customer experience and business operations, and to make a business more agile. But delivering a responsive digital business is not possible at scale without in-memory computing. This session dives into how in-memory computing acts as a foundation for digital business.  Topics include how in-memory computing is used to:

Learn how to deploy Ignite as a service with just a few clicks, and how to use Ignite as a distributed cache or in-memory database (IMDB) as a service. This session is hands-on, showing all the steps you need to take to get up and running, and how to develop, deploy, monitor and manage an Ignite cluster in the cloud.
